Prevention is not only more cost effective, but more humane than after-the-fact intervention

Thank you for visiting our website. In 1994 three women who understood that prevention was not only more cost effective, but also more humane, than after the fact interventions founded the Health Education Learning Project (HELP). For the past nineteen years HELP has been on the forefront of providing comprehensive programs in the areas of HIV prevention, women’s health, and support groups for HIV positive individuals and LGBT youth.

The past year has been an exciting time of growth for HELP. We have added two new programs for mobilizing our local community to join in the fight against HIV/AIDS and STIs. The first initiatives under these programs were to develop a one-stop-shop for HIV services in Tarrant County and conduct the largest community health assessment ever done in Tarrant County focusing on the needs of the LGBT community. The success of these initiatives laid the groundwork for our being awarded a new grant to broaden our scope to include mobilize the community in preventing other sexually transmitted infections as well.

At HELP we understand the success of our organization and the programs we offer is made possible because of the tremendous support we receive from our friends and supporters in the community. Please contact us with any comments, questions or to volunteer for one of our programs.
